    I see now. In case of SU medals, you could NOT buy a re-strike. It's was given by the government and that is it. In some cases e.g. lost of award in the war,natural disaster and so on, in case that recipient had no or very little chance to save the awards, duplicate set could be issued by the government.

    Nowadays you can buy copies of nearly any award but that doesn't make them an award.

    Soviet awards are only those that were mint in the official mints, with a little exception such as 93's
    This is exactly what I wanted to know, THANKS!

(selling and buying government awards were classified as a heavy crime) Awards were given by the government and that is it, end of story. In some cases e.g. lost of award in the war,natural disaster and so on, in case that recipient had no or very little chance to save the awards, duplicate set could be issued by the government. It was a long and hard process as you can imagine.

    and don't worry about the trouble. We are all learned info ones by asking question

    and we keep asking so far
    Thanks for clearing this up ph3s. You are always most helpful
